Eclipse

Where are you viewing the eclipse?

We're in Eastern North Carolina, supposed to have 93% totality here. About 50% at this point...

About 93% north of Seattle. Even at that much coverage, there was a lot more light than I expected. The pic below was taken with my solar glasses over the lens of my Sony DSLR. Sometimes you have to adapt to the situation.

Got to about 88% here in Oklahoma. Looked like a cloudy day, except no clouds in the sky.
The temp dropped by three degrees.

Just went through 99% in WNC, but with clouds obscuring most of it. Did get a few good glimpses.

Just watched it here in E. TN....about 20 miles or so from the very center of totality. It got dark enough for the dusk to dawn light to come on at the back garage, stars were visible, and some crickets were chirping for a short time. We lost about 8-9 degrees during the totality and I have to admit, I'm very glad that I got a chance to see it......from my back porch/deck!

Very neat hearing everyones experiences.

Very eerie light when we were at our peak. We saw about a 7-8 degree drop in temperature. Got just dark enough for my F-150 auto headlights to kick on...Was fortunate enough to get off of work and pick the bride up from her work to view together.

Speaking with my sister just outside of Charleston, SC, in the center of the path, the weather was not favorable unless you were right on the beach.

I think it was about 95-96% from our drive. I "camped" all afternoon taking pics. Had it set for 1 every 30 seconds.
Here is a quick compilation of the entire event.

Spk64 - that is a cool compilation.

We're in central FL and got about 75-80%. I watched most of it on TV and then went outside to see ours. I expected it to get darker. It was really only like when it dims a little when the sun goes behind clouds. It slightly got cooler. It was neat to see just the same.

I wish we had made plans and had traveled up to N. GA to see it in totality. Maybe in 2024.

In New Market TN were +99% totality. Surprising how light it was. The crickets did start chirping though. ~60 miles to the west they were in total eclipse.

I remembered I had an old Welding Helmet in my basement and grabbed the lens to watch the eclipse.

In the end I thought "A lot to do about Nothing" but I guess it is might be memorable in the end.
